EMS Students Support People in Recovery through Service Learning Project

Share

The students in Mrs. Lauri Bell’s health classes recently created care packages for the Chesapeake Treatment Center LLC. as part of a service learning project. The care packages were given to people in treatment for drug addiction and drug abuse, and provided basic necessities such as soap, shampoo, tooth brushes and toothpaste. The students also included individual messages of encouragement for the clients of the center.   This quarter, the students contributed 66 care packages to the center.  Amber Rippeon and Matt James of the Chesapeake Treatment Center visited the school to pick up the care packages.  “This is always an exciting day when we pass along the care packages,” said Lauri Bell.  “The students get to see their hard work being appreciated and it’s a great way to help people.”
